Freya Active AA4004 Crop Top Sports Bra Review February 26 2015
Another sports bra that actually works for us busty gals!
The Freya Active sports bra launched last year and after reading great things set about getting myself strapped into one. Being a 32F, first thing I noticed was how it shaped my boobs, someone made a comment they had never seen my boobs looking so perky! Rather than compress (uni-boob) the Freya Active sports bra encapsulates (no uni-boob) and has foam cups for those that require nipple coverage.
Compared to the Enell sports bra, the Freya has adjustable straps which can be turned into a racerback (providing even more support & perkiness) and up to four hooks and eyes. However, getting into this bra is a mission and I only wear it when my partner is around to help me get into it!
Apart from that (and the Enell has made me lazy with its front opening) this sports bra can be worn under singlets whereas the Enell often needs to be hidden under a t-shirt.
There's been a fair amount of research behind the creation of this sports bra - I won't bore you with it but you can read more here - the highlights that caught my eye were:
- Freya Active sports bra reduces strain to just 3% in the inner region of the breast, compared to 28% in an everyday bra (but we don't exercise in our everyday bras now do we...)
- Reduces sports bra pain by 97%, while an everyday bra reduces pain by only 58%
- Reduces independent breast movement by 92%
